Starting as early as Wednesday, June 15, one lane of Pendleton Avenue will be closed until Sunday, June 19. In addition, a full road closure of Pendleton Avenue is required every day from midnight to 4 a.m. The road closure is needed so crews can raise the Pendleton rail bridge and bring the track to the proper height.
What to Expect
- One lane closed on Pendleton Avenue during the duration of the work
- A full road closure every day from midnight to 4 a.m.
The state Department of Transportation has contracted with Sound Transit to deliver the track and signal work, which includes upgrading crossings, bridge rehabilitation and construction and retaining wall construction.
The Point Defiance Bypass project includes a new Amtrak passenger train station in Tacoma’s Freighthouse Square, new and upgraded track between Tacoma and DuPont and five reconstructed at-grade crossings, each with advanced warning and signal systems. When all work is complete in 2017 it will provide more frequent, reliable and faster Amtrak Cascades passenger rail service in Washington.Print This Post
